To The Bottom Of The Ocean

We continue our exciting STEAM work this term by delving into the ocean! We will be exploring the problem of plastic pollution and the impact it has on marine life before considering what we can do to make a change. We will even invent machines and devices that could help clear the ocean of plastic.

  • Recall and use multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12
  • Recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations. 
  • Multiply two digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout. 
  • Find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares.
  • Recognise and show, using diagrams, families of common equivalent fractions
  • Count up and down in hundredths
  • Solve problems involving increasingly harder fractions to calculate quantities,
  • Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator. 

As writers we are learning to…

  • Write an ocean-based story influenced by David Wiesner’s Flotsam.
  • Engage and hold the reader’s attention when writing a story.
  • Develop settings using a multisensory approach
